or particularly polarizing issues, but because i believe in it. i believe that laura's law outpatient treatment is a tool among many tools that we have in the mental health system to try to engage people in a recovery based way. the foundation of laura's law is a multidisciplinary team trying to engage people, trying to give them as much say in the treatment plan as they are willing to provide and when you read the description in nevada county that has it fully implemented. when you meet the people who work they are, they believe in the same things that mr. vega was mentioning, love kindness, i think that's why we all do this work but there are individuals like my mother, maybe like his son who need a little bit of extra help. i think that sometimes oftentimes clients see judges differently than they see their doctors. they are more line listening to judges than their doctors and than can be a very effective push into treatment, and that sometimes not pushing them in that way prevents them from getting into treatment in the beginning. what i found is that that is the first step to recovery. onc

disciplinary matters are confidential because of a california supreme court ruling in other employment law related matters, the numbers that this commission used to face the docket was at the time 77, 87 officers with charges pending. i am pleased to state for the record today i think we're less than 10. and that's a credit to the commissioners who do this on their own personal time along with the chief, the members of the police officers association, the office of complaints, their mediationses, their attorneys, people are working really hard to get these cases resolved to assure that we have our best officers back on the street and the officers that need discipline have been disciplined. so, is there any comments from the commission? is there any public comment regarding this? hearing none, public comment is now closed.

ammiano that essentially would make it the law in california that law enforcement could not use condoms as evidence for prostitution. the core of hiv prevention throughout this country has been the fact that condoms are very he critical to preventing hiv and other diseases. it is truly the most effective means by which to prevent transmission of this virus. unfortunately, in direct contradiction to that urgent public health message, we have in some parts of this country and some parts of this state law enforcement that actually use the possession of condoms by a person who is expected or expected of prostitution as evidence that that person indeed engaged in prostitution. and as a result of that, as a result, that law enforcement points to the existence or the use of a condom as evidence for prostitution, many individuals, many sex workers and those who fear being profiled as second workers no longer carry condoms with them, which is something that actually not only creates a public health hazard in terms of their health, but the health of the public as a whole. that really creates mult

of learning cross-examination skills and of learning the law. what we do is teach lawyers to adopt values that are missing in the system. we give them strategies when they confront challenges in the system to overcome those challenges instilling values in them and we have a membership community that reinforces to try to do that and the goal is when they are raiseing the standard of interpretation. in 10 years one of them will be sitting at that table, one of them will get that question an they will answer it correctly. i don't have enough resources. the movement is about teaching people to be better lawyers today but also building an army of people across the region and ultimately across the country who will work their ways into positions of power where they are leading public defenders offices and hiring people behind them to do what you do all the time, jeff, you are out there telling people that public defenders matter.

3 strikes law. i also want to point out to this group even though the focus today is on public defenders in the criminal system, in san francisco we try to go even further than that. last year they were making san francisco the rights to civil council city, the city of gideon. there are civil cases, eviction cases, family law cases where the consequences, the results followed in court are almost as severe to what gideon faced and what people face in criminal cases. what we recognize at the outset of the supervisors proclamation is part inspirational, our leaders in the community have rallied around it and the bar association and our firms have taken on more conviction cases. later we'll be holding an event to thank people in these positions and so please stay tuned about that. in the meantime let's focus on gideon and the public defenders role. i would say if there is ever a time and place to turn the tied and to bring the &m music back to gideon's trumpet. we thank you and look forward to a great day. thank you.

. we have to work with the pretrial system and law enforcement and judicial system, we are a part of it and i see we will be a part of it for years. >> we got a second question, i am going to ask it. if someone qualifies for release isn't inherently unfair that this person remains incarcerated because of the inability to post bail. i guess if someone qualifies for release, they don't have to post bail. are there instances where someone -- let me ask it differently. i have been in court where a judge charged them with a crime and could see a release. but maybe other issues going on. maybe barefooted and don't have a place they are living. and maybe get someone like you willie, in your organization involved and supervisor. is that appropriate? or is that violating someone's right not to have the oversight of the court and criminal justice system? will? >> how supervisor retrial came about was really in jail overcrowding. there are cases where, specific cases, getting a homeless individual. there are a group of case managers called court accountable homeless services. it targets home

as required by law to any city agency. he has for years presented deceptive information to the public regarding tens of millions of dollars. the best i can figure right now it's somewhere between 50 and 60 million since 2000. and those funds were raised in the name of the citizens of san francisco. i have been dealing with mr. herrera and his constant effort to abrogate and censor public comment. he has been found on four occasion to have done so by the sunshine ordinance task force, both the prior task force and your replace task force. and i have no problem at all calling luis herrera city librarian a con artist. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >>> [speaker not understood] executive director of library users association. the library is planning a reduction in fines for so-called media, that is, cds and dvds, from $1 a day to 10 cents a day. and while that particular step is a step in the direction that we have advocated for a long time, the library overall has policies that are all over the map and in many cases are contrary to patron -- good patron service and patron interest

you spend the day talking to your federal law enforcement sources across the country. >> we are hearing there was no active specific target in california that is receiving special attention but everyone stresses that all agencies remain on high alert status. one of the early keys is the fact that they did recover at least one device that did not detonate. that is key because they are skilled at reverse engineering these devices. we are told the sophistication will help determine the potential suspect or suspects. you can bet they are combing through every piece of video and video cameras in that area. federal agents are currently running down leads internationally and domestically and two sources said today is also tax day. we also confirmed there is no individual or individuals from the bay area currently being investigated for any connection to the boston bombing. and finally two sources say on attacks like this it is not uncommon to have what is called a spike in monitored chatter and communications. both sources said according to federal agents the federal agents did not
, this is video taken over the area this morning and it shows law enforcement agents searching an apartment house near the waterfront in that city. you can see they are searching a duffel bag from that house and that search was prompted from a traffic stop when police pulled over somebody they described as auspicious driver. officers are trying to pull over suspicious people at the boston marathon. and that's video from the finish line as the twin bombs exploded yesterday afternoon. the blast went off in the middle of a huge crowd of spectators. three people are dead, at least 140 injured and one of those killed was an eight-year-old boy and still more than a dozen are listed in critical condition in boston hospital and their injuries are severed limbs and broken bones and broken eardrums. they are not speculating yet on a possible motive. >> this will be a combined federal state and local effort and it will be an on going investigation and it is a potential terrorist investigation. >> they were crude devices likely left along the marathon route. >> they are now pouring over video and they are se
